Mayor Barry Statement on Judge Casey Moreland

March 28, 2017

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 28, 2017) – Mayor Megan Barry has issued the following statement on news that Judge Casey Moreland has been criminally charged as part of an FBI investigation into his activities:

"Nashville deserves to have absolute trust in our judiciary, and Casey Moreland, based upon the allegations in the federal complaint, seems to have clearly violated that trust. Like all Americans, Judge Moreland deserves the chance to defend himself in court. However, resigning his position now would seem to be in the best interest of the Nashvillians who depend upon the integrity of our General Sessions Court judges to rule in a fair and unbiased manner.”
